Hi

I'm looking for drop shipping supplier in electronics (cell phone and digital

cameras) in New Zealand. I have found some suppliers from china but it

takes 5-8 days.

Hi onlineseller20x,

Finding suppliers in New Zealand isn't easy. I've been in the product sourcing game for a few years now (based in NZ), and have never used a New Zealand supplier; we just don't manufacturer a lot of stuff here.

Is the 5-8 day wait your only concern with buying from China? If so, I would say it is well worth the wait. You are much more likely to get products at better prices when importing from China.

A few other things you should know:

Electronics such as cameras and cell phones are pretty damn competitive on TradeMe. It's a market I myself would avoid. Unless you have some big money to invest (and therefore get a decent bulk-buying discount) you are likely to struggle against other more seasoned sellers who are selling the same products.

Also, when dealing with Chinese suppliers, know that 99% of the branded items that come out of China are fakes. With electronics, that can mean that the items don't function like the real thing does.

For example a camera might only have very little internal memory, or the external memory stick will be a bit fragile, so the user might lose some of their photos - not a good look if this appears in your feedback comments.

If you can track down a supplier in Hong Kong, however, you can be fairly sure that they will be selling authentic items, but expect large minimum orders when dealing with them.

I found a local cables supplier based in Christchurch that I quite like the look of:

You might find that selling accessories like they offer will bring you much more success.

Thanks Alice for the great advice, the electronics thing was going in my

mind and you made it very clear, appreciate your help. I'm kind of newbie

to the whole dropshipping business and I have also ordered some

products from chinavasion and I'm glad i did that as i'm now able to see

what my customers get which i hope would have left a bad feedback.

Thanks again.
